These days, people who are afflicted by pretty much any type of illness seek out a doctor who is going to heal them by prescribing some medicine. Even though most people have been doing this for years on end now, the truth is that the medicine you obtain from a pharmacist is pretty much guaranteed to be stuffed with various chemicals that bring on a myriad of side effects. There are only a handful of people left around who still practice the art of creating home remedies to heal themselves.
Naturally, using home remedies raises an obvious question: Why should one go for homemade recipes instead of countless years of institutional medical progress? Well first of all, let’s establish what precisely a home-made remedy is. While there are some people who believe these remedies are mostly based around some kind of ancient magic beliefs, it couldn’t be further from the truth (at least in most cases). Home treatments have actually been used throughout centuries and the recipes we have today are based on thousands of years of first-hand experimentation. The fact that most of these home therapies are quite ancient means that they mostly use fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices that have been proven to heal certain illnesses.
What exactly are the benefits of using of using home treatments? First of all, they are very cheap to make in comparison to the medication you would have to purchase from your pharmacy. Drugs made by large pharmaceutical companies are researched, tested, processed and advertised their costs go through the roof. On the other hand, the ingredients you need for these remedies can be acquired for only a fraction of that cost.
Second of all, you know exactly what ingredients are in your remedy when you make it at home. It’s quite unfortunate that the same thing cannot be said for drugs sold by large pharmaceutical companies. As a matter of fact, in most cases the ingredients used for the home recipe are the same ones you would use for cooking.
The third advantage home remedies offer is the fact that they are much milder on your body. Seeing as how they are meant to directly attack a certain illness and are made from common vegetation they don’t harbor the strong components you would find in pharmaceutical drugs.
Another benefit of using home remedies is the lack of side effects. Pharmaceutical drugs more often than not make use of a large variety of ingredients, some of which happen to be quite strong and aggressive. As a result, instead of simply treating the minor illness you have the drugs will also affect a variety of other functions in your body, rendering you dizzy, nauseous, and even depressed in some cases. On the other hand, home recipes make use of a minimum of ingredients (just enough to directly attack the illness), none of which usually contain any strong components.
Finally, using these concoctions have actually been demonstrated to be very effective in treating an extremely wide range of illnesses including: abdominal pain, acne, pimples, arthritis, acidity, heartburn, bad breath, bronchitis, skin allergies, migraine, gingivitis, diarrhea, depression, cuts, ear infection, eczema, low blood sugar, and the list goes on and on, and on. In other words, while pharmaceutical drugs were being advertised like there was no tomorrow, a lot of progress was made with lesser known home remedies to pretty much treat all the minor illnesses known to man. I will ask you to keep in mind though that when it comes to major illnesses such as cancer or AIDS, modern medicine may have the edge there. However, even that point is moot because people who resort to a home remedy generally don’t come forward to share their story with the world.
All things considered, on one hand modern medicine may have proven to be quite capable of curing small illnesses and slowing down big ones, however, on the other hand home remedies have been used for thousands of years, and have more than stood the test of time. There can be only one reason for them to have survived that long: home remedies represent a very easy, fast, safe and cheap way of treating any minor illness you may have.
